This is close to where I live, usually go there a couple times to walk.

Man killed by alligator while searching for Frisbee in Tampa Bay park

There is a frisbee golf course there, apparently this guy would go searching for lost frisbees and resale them.

GEIKO INSURANCE

We're barely more than a week into June and it's already a banner month for weird car sex stories. This week's comes way out of left field (which is somewhere near Kansas City, apparently) thanks to a ruling by the Missouri Court of Appeals ordering insurance juggernaut Geico to pay a woman $5.2 million in damages after being infected with HPV during intimate activities that took place in an insured personal vehicle. Look, we warned you.

Per The Kansas City Star, the woman initiated a claim with Geico in February 2021 after learning that she'd contracted the sexually transmitted infection from a partner who knew but did not disclose his status. Since the incident in question happened in her partner's car, she argued that his liability insurance was responsible for damages. A settlement was reportedly offered to Geico, whose lawyers declined. As anybody who's had legal entanglements with an insurance company can probably guess, the case went to arbitration.
In what we're certain was a surprise to Geico's legal team, arbitration did not go their way. The woman's partner was found liable and the arbitrator approved an award of $5.2 million in damages to be paid out by the insurer despite requests by Geico for a new hearing. The insurance company appealed to the courts on several grounds, claiming that the process denied it the ability to have its day in court. The company's appeal was denied on all points. For anyone who's ever emerged from arbitration feeling that the process leaves something to be desired, this time it's an insurance company who feels that way.

Sounds more like a CA court.

He is obviously connected to the judge, who with that decision should face a bar review.
Or, the mom hatched up the rape claim 15 years later after an unfavorable court ruling? No way to know the details of this one from a Post article. The statutory rape however would seem pretty cut and dry?

Or, since it is still within the statute of limitations for the state, he proved he raped her when he proved it is his child. Can't argue the ages of hte mother and child. It is statutory rape thru and thru. The judge voted for his friend.

Not a link, but I just had the unpleasant experience of watching a Gatorade commercial featuring what appears to be a 300lb+ woman in a spandex workout suit.

It was like watching a train wreck, well even worse than that. I could not reach the remote control fast enough to alleviate the assault on my eyes.

Hold on, if we are going to go down that road, there are plenty of other custody and child support decisions that need to be addressed just as aggresively that go against the fathers.
